The Fremantle Herald [2]


In 1913 a new workers' weekly was established, with William Carpenter serving as editor. He lasted less than a year, and subsequently the newspaper became 'less friendly' to the labour movement. Wikipedia.

Yesterday gave birth to still one more journalistic venture at the Port, when the Fremantle Herald, a weekly Journal, came into existence. The new paper is being conducted by Mr. W. Clare, an energetic hustler, well known in the Press world of Western Australia. The 'Herald' aims at provldlng Fremantle with purely local news and taking up the cudgels in the Interests of the chief seaport of the State. The initial issue is one that has created a most favorable, impression. It la attractively printed, and brightly written, while the extent of space taken up by local advertisers augurs well for the success of the new venture, It is the intention of the proprietor to enlarge the paper, commencing from next week, and if the present standard is maintained, the Port public will have no reason to grumble at their weekly pennyworth of local literature. The Daily News (Perth), 19 April 1913: 11.
